The chief of the World Health Organization (WHO) said Monday that all countries living with COVID-19 will be the new normal in the coming months, as the pandemic had already infected more than 10 million people worldwide, including nearly 500,000 deaths.

“The critical question that all countries will face in the coming months is how to live with this virus. That is the new normal,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at a daily press briefing.

He added that

although many countries have made some progress against the COVID-19, the pandemic is speeding up globally.

According to the latest WHO numbers, as of 3:15 p.m. CEST (1315 GMT) on Monday, the total infected population worldwide had reached 10,021,401, including 499,913 deaths.

“Six months ago, none of us could have imagined how our world — and our lives — would be thrown into turmoil by this new virus,” the WHO chief said.

“The pandemic has brought out the best and the worst of humanity,”

he continued. “All over the world, we have seen heartwarming acts of resilience, inventiveness, solidarity, and kindness. But we have also seen concerning signs of stigma, misinformation and the politicization of the pandemic.”

He urged all countries to prioritize five sets of measures to save lives, including empowering communities and individuals to protect themselves and others, suppressing virus transmission, saving lives with oxygen and dexamethasone for instance, accelerating research on COVID-19, and strengthening political leadership and solidarity.

Tedros also announced an updated and detailed timeline of the WHO’s response to the pandemic for the public to understand how the UN health body has been responding to the outbreak.

  1. Prime Minister Victor Orban & his Government have been exemplary in this novel coronavirus pandemic, crisis, that we still live in Hungary to-day.
    America – a humanitarian disaster.
    Victoria, the second largest populated state in Australia, is victim to a new spread of this virus.
    We are still without a Vaccine, that will immunize human beings against contacting this deadly virus.
    There must remain tight management and control by Governments, to ensure the spread of this virus again does not gain a momentum, that witnesses it spreading within Society.
    We must not relax or open our country up, back to a level of normality still at this early stage of this virus.
    We must restrict tourism, have tight monitoring and control of entry into Hungary, especially from the United States of America, which should not have visitation to Hungary permitted.
    We live in a vulnerable fragile period of time in history, that will see massive change globally to the world, that existed prior to the outbreak of this virus.
    We must remain focused, diligent, and obedient, our human behavior image and pattern, of total responsibility, driven by a self hardened conviction of right and wrong in the way we individually live our lives.
    This virus is a sleeping tiger,.
    If we, as humans, by our irresponsible actions and lifestyle, don’t exercise discipline and obedience and responsibility, listening and taking the advice from Medical Science, the tiger will awake the dragon and all fire will be what will be the situation, that the world will be faced to deal and sort through, the destructiveness to society, caused by this virus.
    Stay Well – ALL.

  2. Looks like Gary has been drinking a lot of Kool aid from the media. Gary doesn’t think for himself. The media does it for him.

    No denying the virus is real but it is no more deadly than the seasonal flu to most healthy people. Most whom are dying have other serious medical issues such as cancer, heart disease , diabetes, COPD or are seriously over weight.

    Gary is unaware the agenda is NOT to prevent a virus, the agenda is to inject nano particulate into our bodies to enable tracking of people in real time. This is the Biblical Mark of the Beast. Gary do you stand with the Creator or with Satan? No way am I going to take this vaccine.
